Foreword 



FOREWORD 



In the year 1888 my father gathered all the historical data 
that he could find about his own branch of the Brown family 
and wrote a sketch, which he read at the celebration of the 
sixtieth birthday anniversary of his youngest brother, John 
Brown. 

Eighteen years later, when I had gained some genealogical 
information by working in the D. A. R. organization, I found, 
when looking over this historical sketch, the data which enabled 
me to prove the Revolutionary service of our ancestor, "John 
Brown" of Brimfield, Mass. 

At an informal reunion of some of the descendants of this 
John Brown, in 1906, I was made historian of our Brown family, 
and promised to undertake the gathering of family data, with the 
anticipation that we might some time have a "John Brown 
Genealogy." 

At that time I knew nothing definite about the descendants 
of the children of John Brown and his wife Lovina (Lyon), 
with the exception of those of my own line. This genealogy^ 
now includes the descendants of six of the seven children of 
"John" and "Lovina," the only incomplete branch being that of 
the oldest child, "Oril." Famil}^ tradition says that she married 
x-^lonzo (?) Hovey, had four children; that she died when a 
young woman, and that they never moved away from ALissachu- 
setts. Another family tradition says that Oril and her family 
moved to Western New York. My information about this branch 
is very meager. 

One of my aims has been to prove the parentage of Lovina 
Lyon, but that has not been accomplished. Family stories say 
that Lovina had a sister Lucy, who married a Mr. Atkinson ; a 
sister Sarah, who married Paul (?) Langdon; also another sis- 
ter, name unknown ; two brothers, one of whom went to live 
near Batavia, N. Y. ; one named Philip, who was a practicing 
physician — and old letters tell about Lovina going to Vermont 
to see her brother Philip. There is a note in one of the "Lyon 
Memorial" books, telling of a Philip Lj^on of Ludlow, Vt., who 
"died July 26, 1802. His amiable consort died the previous year 
at Randolph, Vt." No children. 

The dates connected with the record of Philip Lyon of Wil- 
braham, Mass., show that he might have been the father of 
Lovina; and if it can be proved to be a fact, that would give 
us another Revolutionary ancestor, for the service of Philip Lyon 
in the Revolution is on record; also his service in the French 
and Indian War. 



John Brown and his Descendants 



I have not yet obtained proof that he was the father of Lo- 
vina ; it might be found by examination of the old Massachusetts 
records. A proof of that nature which has already been put 
on record can be looked up at any time. It has been thought 
best, however, that the publication of this book should not be 
longer dela3^ed, even if these records are incomplete. 

The special line of genealogical work which I have tried to 
accomplish has been to collect the scattered links of the present 
generation and to connect them with the past generations, thus 
m.aking a continuous chain of historical data back to our Brown 
Revolutionary ancestors. 

As the work progressed I found that the Browns had doubly 
intermarried with the "Scott" and "Merrill" families, and as they 
are the ancestors of both the publisher and historian of this 
genealogy, it was decided to include their records as collateral 
branches. The "Harriott" branch comes in a direct line from 
the Scotts, and the "Follett" branch is so closely connected with 
several of the different families that it has also been included. 

I wish to express through this medium my grateful appre- 
ciation to all who have shown such a kindly interest in this his- 
torical work and have been such valuable assistants in collecting 
the data of the various families, for without their hearty co- 
operation this genealogy could not have been compiled — so I want 
to thank you, one and all. 

The difficulties connected with the gathering together of cor- 
rect family data are very great. Different members of the same 
family frequently disagree in regard to important dates, and 
the most careful correspondents sometimes make mistakes. I 
want to bring to your attention a quotation from the venerable 
Dr. Slaughter : 

"An author cannot spin genealogies out of his own brain, as the 
goddess springs complete from the brain of Jupiter. 

He can only collect and digest materials gathered from various 
and often conflicting authorities. 

They then pass into the hands of copyists, and are thence com- 
mitted to the tender mercies of that most formidable of all 
steam engines — the press. 

It will be a marvel if a family can make all these perilous pas- 
sages without the loss of some members, or suffering such 
dislocations and fractures that they often can be hardly 
recognizable." 

INIy dear friends, if your family record is not correct, please 
be charitable ; we have all done the very best we could. 

This "John Brown Genealogy" is now presented with the wish 
that you may enjoy the perusal of it as much as I have enjoyed 
the compiling.

TRADITIONAL AND HISTORICAL 

SKETCH 



"Those who do not look upon themselves ?.s a link connecting 
the past with the future do not perform their duty to the 
w'orld." — Daniel Webster. 

"To weave together the fading dates of old manuscripts with 
the traditions that have survived sleeping generations, until the 
joy and tears, the quaint speech and early piety, stand out upon 
the tapestry in the semblance of a living man — this gives a 
pleasure which he only who has stood at the loom can feel and 
understand." — Charles Knowlton Bolton. 

A just pride in an honorable ancestry is as ennoljlin,!? to the 
generation that now is as it is regardful and appreciative of the 
generations that are gone. Such a spirit is creditable to the 
living and the just dues of the dead. 

The structure of our splendid American civilization has been 
built upon a foundation laid by a comparatively few venturesome 
Europeans three centuries ago. Generation after generation of 
their descendants have worked away at the structure and then 
laid down in their graves, while younger hands have grasped the 
implements to labor their little day and then pass on. Those 
who have their names inscribed in this genealog}' com.e of an 
English family v/hich has had and still has an active and not 
ignominious part in the nation's upbuilding and progress. 

This sketch travels outside the realm, of certainty/, and the 
boundary line of tradition falls considerably earlier than the time 
of John Brown of Brimfield, ]\Iass., our Revolutionary ancestor. 
There is a well-founded tradition in our family that we are 
descended from John Brown, the Covenanter, who suffered mar- 
tyrdom for his reli':^iou3 principles in En?rland in the time of 
Queen Elizabeth. He was shot down before his own door in 
the presence of his wife and children by one Claverhouse, leader 
of a company of soldiery which had been sent thither for that 
purnose. The Covenanter had kept hidden and had previously 
avoided the soldiers, but this time, when he could not be found, 
his tv.-elve-5'ear-old dau-rhter was hung up by the thum.bs until 
she should reveal her father's whereabouts. In order to soare 
his daughter, the father at once came forth from his hid-ng 
place. He was told he had only five minutes to live. He spent 
the tim.e in prayer, which so impressed the sold-ers that thev 
refused to fire at their leader's command. Claverhouse him.self 
then cruelly shot and killed the unarmed and innocent man. 

Our tradition has always located this sad event in Yorkshire, 
England, but Rev. A. McDowell, of Ansonia, Conn., places it at 



6 John Brown and his Descendants 

Muirkirk, Ayrshire, Scotland, his birthplace. There is a monu- 
ment there that he has often visited, erected to John Brown, 
the martyr, the circumstances and names coinciding almost per- 
fectly, the only disagreement being as to location. 

There is reason to believe that we are descended from an 
English emigrant who came to America a few years after the 
arrival of the Mayflower. This Brown settled in Beverly, Mass. 

There is a theory regarded with favor by some, and one which 
I am inclined quite strongly to accept, that the widow Christian 
Brown mentioned in Savage's Genealogical Dictionary of the 
early settlers of New England as coming over in 1638 or 1640 
and settling in Essex County, Mass., with her three sons, George, 
Henry and William, is the head of our line of Browns. She 
died Dec. 28, 1641, one of her sons marrying that year, while the 
other two are on record as marrying the same day in 1645. 
It is admitted that the "Essex Antiquarian Genealogy" makes 
the three brothers sons of a Henry Brown, while in a foot note 
it is pointed out that some think them the sons of the Widow 
Christian. These early histories are more or less hazy and 
uncertain. However, there seems to be no question as to the 
accuracy of the statement that three Brown brothers came over 
early and settled in Essex County. Mass., George settliug iri 
Haverhill, and Henry and William in Salisbury. 

Set this alongside of the tradition long extant in our family, 
that three brothers came over with their father and settled in 
Beverly, Essex County, Mass.. with the exception of one brother, 
who went south. To go "south" may have meant that he did not 
settle down with the rest of the family, and not that he traveled 
far afield, something people could not do in those early days. 
He m^ay have established himself in the same county, and if so, 
this condition is partially met in George, who settled in Haver- 
hill, which is more west than south. 

Salisl)ury, Beverly and Salem are in Essex County, the two 
latter being connected by a bridge. Henry second owned a farm 
in Salem village, living in both Salisbury and Salem for a time, 
settling permanently in the latter place in 1700, although the rec- 
ord shows that he died in Salisbury eight years later. We have 
mentioned that Beverly and Salem were connected by a bridge, 
making the two places almost identical, and that Salisbury was 
not distant enough to prevent one from making his home in both 
places at the same time, and in this way we have to a great 
extent met the conditions necessary to fulfil a part of the tra- 
dition. Now we find John, the son of Henry, permanently located 
in Salem, where his five sons are born, two of these sons, accord- 
ing to the record, being baptized in Beverly. His son Jonathan 
was born Dec. 31, 1716, and for two reasons we are inclined to 
the opinion that he was the father of our Revolutionary ancestor, 
John Brown, of Brimfield. 

Jonathan was living in Salem in 1738, and there his record 
ceases. His mother had died in 1731, and his father had just 



Traditional and Historical 



died. His home broken up, what more natural than that the 
youth of 22 start out to conquer his destiny? According to the 
Brimheld genealogy, our Revolutionary ancestor's father, Jon- 
athan, comes to Brimheld from Salem or Beverly about 1739. 
Is not that fact itself a good and sufficient reason for connecting 
the Brimfield Browns with the Salisbury-Salem-Beverly Browns? 

Another reason is that the mental and moral caliber of these 
Salisbury Browns resembles somewhat strikingly that of the 
Browns with which we are identified. Here we find carpenters, 
blacksmiths, tailors, tanners, weavers, agriculturists, and so on, 
whh a liberal sprinkling of soldiers. No professional men, and 
in those days there was doubtless no great demand for them. 
While in these later times there have been found among us 
educators, physicians, lawyers and ministers, it is true that their 
number has never been overwhelming. 

These Salisbury Browns seem to have been a brave, patriotic, 
respectable. God-fearing people. They established their homes, 
reared their families, filled their appointed stations, and lived 
out their day. They contributed their share, in obscure places 
for the most part, toward the moulding of our splendid civiliza- 
tion. George, one of the original three brothers, is on record 
as being a soldier in King Philip's War, and later a prominent 
citizen of Haverhill, representing that place at general court for 
several terms. 

According to Savage, Capt. Nathaniel Brov.m, of Salisbury, 
was likewise a representative at general court in 1691. We there- 
fore find two men among the Salisbury Browns entitled to the 
distinction of Honorable. 

A rumor that we are descended from Samuel, a brother of 
Peter Brown of the Mayflow^er, finds no credence in Savage's 
Dictionary of Early Inhabitants of New England. He mentions 
only one brother, John, of Plymouth, who settled in Swanzy, 
Rhode Island. He had two children, ]\Iary and James, the 
daughter marrying Thomas Willet, said to have been the first 
mayor of New York City. Savage's record includes only the 
New England settlers previous to May, 1692, and is regarded as 
authentic. 

Our ancestor, Jonathan Brown, is recorded in the history of 
Brimfield, IMass., as having moved thither from Beverly or Salem 
in 1739. He was married in Brimfield to Abigail Russell Sept. 
10, 1741. A son of this union was John Browm, born in the same 
town. 

Those were strenuous times, and those were strenuous an- 
cestors of ours who lived through them, enjoj'ing life after the 
manner of their times and conditions, leaving a heritage of hon- 
esty and fidelity to principle worthy of imitation by all succeed- 
ing generations. The hardships of early Americans were many, 
among which the hostility of neighboring nations and the Indians 
were not the least ; and when John was yet a little boy Father 
Jonathan must leave the children with Abigail and go away to 



8 John Brown and his Descendants 

fight in tlie English army against the French and Indians. There 
was no faltering on the part of either father or mother. Much 
was required and much was cheerfully given by both men and 
women in those pioneer days. 

John Brown was a man grown when the war of the Revolu- 
tion broke out. He enlisted in 1775, soon after the battle of 
Lexington. The father, Jonathan, planned to enter the army, 
but John dissuaded him and himself marched away with the 
family musket. Later this veteran of the French and Indian War 
found his fighting fever too strong to resist, and again became 
a soldier, enlisting now against the English in the war for 
American freedom. 

The first engagement in which John Brown had a part was 
the battle of White Plains, Oct. 28, 1776. He also participated 
in the crossing of the Delaware under Washington, and fought 
in the battles of Trenton and Princeton which followed. It 
stirs the blood to know that our John Brown was one of Wash- 
ington's choice band of loyal patriots. 

John Brown was also in the second battle of Saratoga, which 
resulted in the surrender of Burgoyne. He served his country 
over five 5'ears, but there is no connected record of his service. 
The battles he fought in and the time he served show on his 
pension record. 

When the war was over and the dove of peace settled down 
over the troubled colonies; John Brown's thotights, normal man 
that he was, turned tovv'ard the establishment of a home, and 
the Revolutionary maiden, Lovina Lyon, now appears upon the 
scene. She was his choice, and they were wedded on Christmas, 
T783. The wedding was on the anniversary of the battle of 
Trenton, and one v/ould like to know if the soldier's thoughts 
harked back to that time with any conception of its stupendous 
meanin?'". Tt is not likely. He was one of the "giants" of those 
days and knew it not. 

To this union of John Brown and Lovina Lyon came seven 
children. All attained to manhood and womanhood, and all 
married. All lived to old age save one. Twenty-six years John 
and Lovina walked together, and then John was called from 
earth. He died in Norwich, Chenango County, N. Y., and the 
distance from their early Eastern Massachusetts home in those 
days must have been great. With the star of empire they had 
migrated westward. So Lovina Lyon, our brave foremother, 
had her share of the hardships and privations incident to fron- 
tier life and the rearing of a large family of children. She 
lived to a ripe age, 8r years, dying in Ohio about 1846, having 
been twice wedded after the death of John Brown. Her last 
husband was Edward Paine, a Revolutionary officer, after whom 
Painesville, Ohio, is named. 

Our line of Browns are not of Quaker descent, for we have 
been represented in every war that has occurred in this coun- 
trv. One of John Brov>'n's sons enlisted in the War of t8i2. 



Traditional and Flistorical 9 



while more than half a score of his grandsons were in the Civil 
War. Two of his grandsons were killed in battle. His descend- 
ants were represented in the Spanish War, and in this year of 
1909 one of the sixth generation from John Brown, of Brim- 
held, took the trip with the "round-the-world" fleet on the battle- 
ship Ohio. It is a far cry from the battle of Trenton to the 
"round-the-world fleet," on its mission of peace, but we do not 
forget that the latter could not have been possible without the 
former, and that the slender tie of blood filtering through six 
generations binds together these two notable men and events. 

For the most part we Browns are a quiet, unostentatious folk, 
independent. God-fearing and home-loving. In the early days 
we were to a great extent tillers of the soil. All respectable 
callings claim some of us now. Although we cannot boast of 
wealth or distinction, we take pride in untarnished names and 
the respect and esteem of our neighbors and of each other. 
We come of a stock from which the world has received some- 
thing good in the past, and from which it will expect something 
better in the future. 

"Contented Toil and hospitable Care, 
And kind connubial Tenderness, are there; 
And Piety with wishers placed above, 
And sturdy Loyalty and faithful Love."

10 John Brown and His Descendants 



JONATHAN BROWN 



Jonathan Brown, the father of John Brown, moved from 
Salem or Beverly, Mass., to Brimfield about 1739. The history 
of Brimfield is filled with references to Jonathan Brown and his 
immediate descendants, showing that they took an active interest 
in everything that concerned the welfare of the village. 

I" ^753 Jonathan Brown was one of a committee of five, 
called "A Committee of Grievance." Article 6th of their report 
reads : "That we are, and ever have been, ready to risque our 
lives and spend our fortunes in the defense of His Majesty, 
King George the 3rd, his Crown and Dignity. That we will 
endeavor to lead quiet and peaceable lives, but at the same time 
firmly and resolutely endeavor by every just and constitutional 
way, to maintain our rights and liberties yet continued, that 
were purchased for us by the blood of our ancestors, and to 
recover those which have been cruelly, not to say unrighteously, 
taken from us," etc. — Referring to the unconstitutional raising 
of revenue and other troubles. 

Jonathan Brown served in the French and Indian War as 
sergeant in Capt. Daniel Burt's regiment from March 30, 1755, 
to Jan. 3, 1756. (Mass. Archives, Book 94, p. 90.) 

At a "Congress of Committees" held in Hampden County, 
Mass., in 1774, "to consult upon measures to be taken in this 
time of general distress in the province, occasioned by the late 
attacks of the British Parliament upon the Constitution of said 
province," all male inhabitants were divided into two military 
companies. Of the West Company (Capt. Samuel Nichols), 
Jonathan Brown was made First Lieutenant. 

Jonathan Brown's Revolutionary record is a long one. He 
served as sergeant in Capt. Jos. Thompson's company of minute 
men, which marched on tlie alarm of April 19, 1775, service 16J/2 
days. He was Second Lieutenant of Capt. Aaron Charles' com- 
pany, commissioned June 13, 1776; also Lieut. Capt. Nehemiah 
May's company, from May 6, 1777, to July 8, 1777. He served 
as Second Lieutenant in a company of guards raised to do duty 
in and about Bostr.n, under Maj. Gen. Gates and Maj. Gen. 
Heath ; in service 3 mos. and 28 days, from Jan. 26. 1779. He 
also served t mo. and 12 days at New London, Conn., from 
July 19, T779, and again, June 16, 1782, he marched to Spring- 
field and Northampton in support of the government. — Synopsis 
from Massachusetts Soldiers and Sailors, p. 654.) 

At a town meeting held June 28, 1779, Jonathan Brown was 
one of a committee of six to "consider tlie value of tlie services 
of Brimfield men who had served in the Revolution." Jonathan

Brown had £21 los., Jonathan Jr.,. £9. Jonathan Brown was one

The Brown Family 21 



JOHN BROWN 



In the annals of the Brimfield (Mass.) church, John Brown 
and his wife, Lovina, were admitted to the church April, 1785. 
The)'- were dismissed to Holland in 1793. Among the early set- 
tlers of Holland, John Brown was one of the conspicuous figures 
in town affairs about the time of the division of Brimfield and 
the creation of the new district, Holland, out of the southern 
territory. In 1790 he was one of the selectmen. 

The first American census, taken in 1790, under head of 
Holland, Mass., gives : "John Brown, male, i head of family, 
I under 16 yrs. old ; females 2."

The Merrill Branch 81 



THE MERRILL BRANCH 



The Merrills are of French origin, descendants of the Hugue- 
not family of DeMerle, who escaped to England after the mas- 
sacre of St. Bartholomew in 1572. This DeMerle family be- 
longed to the Auvergne nobility, having had its ancestral estate 
near Place-de-Dombes in that province. Coat of arms, a shield- 
azure band through the center, upper and lower part silver, two 
peacocks' heads on top, one on bottom. This family in France 
are still Huguenots, the most distinguished member of recent 
years being Merle D'Aubigne, the historian. As the patronymic 
Merle means "blackbird," the earliest generations of the family 
in that country used a seal on which is displayed three black- 
birds. 

Having fled from France because of their faith, they natural- 
ly cast in their lot with the Puritans, and settled in Salisbury, 
county of Wiltshire. Sir Peter Merrill, of the British x\rmy, 
knighted in 1634, was a member of this family, Nathaniel Mer- 
rill and his brother John emigrated in 1633, settling first in Ip- 
swich, Mass., but removed to Newbury in that state in 1634 or 
1635, receiving a grant of land on The Neck in 1638. John 
Merrill had no sons, but one daughter. 

1 NATHANIEL MERRILL, married, probably in England, Su- 
sannah Wolterton. He died March 16, 1654-5.

Merrill w^as in Hartford, Conn., 1657 ; elected free- 
man at a session of the General Court, May 20, 1658, 
There he became associated with Gregory Wolter- 
ton, one of the first settlers, who was a man of 
means, proprietor of a large tannery, as well as of 
other real estate. At Wolterton' s death in July, 
1674, and by his will, John Alerrill became the 
owner of his tanyard and house. Gregory Wolter-

It has been impossible to obtain an authentic record of the 
Revolutionary service of Eleazer Merrill. In Collections of the 
Connecticut Historical Societ}'^, Vol. VIII, there is mention of 
Elizer Merrill, in Fourth Company, Lieut. Seymour, First Regi- 
ment, Major Roger Newberry, of Hartford, receipting for i\ 
advance money, at Hartford, Aug. 15, 1776. The descendants of 
Eleazer Merrill, however, have an old wooden canteen marked 
"A. M. 1765" on one end, and "A.M. 1777" on the other end. 
Also one with "E. M." on it, but no date. Eleazer' was one 
of the Susquehanna Land Co., Vv^ho bought land in Northeast 
Pennsylvania from the Indians. Solomon''' and Eleazer" moved 
there soon after the Revolution and nam.ed the new home Litch- 
lield, after their old home in Connecticut. The old log barn 
is still standing, and the well sweep is in use. The orchards, 
planted with seed brought from Connecticut, are still bearing 
fruit. 

The descendants of Solomon" and Eleazer Jr.," hold a re- 
union every year in a grove two miles from Athens, Pa., on the 
last Thursday in August. Athens is only a short distance from 
Litchfield.

38 John Brov/n and his Descendants 

Mr. Wm. E. Dempse}-, of Akron, Ohio, contributes the fol- 
lowing, v/hich he obtained from his mother, who was Mary 
Scott Merrill, daughter of Abijah Merrill: "It seems that Abi- 
jah's father had been a British oiRcer before the Revolution 
broke out, and just before Abijah was born his father sold his 
red officer's uniform to some man who carried it away in such 
a m.anner that his Vvdfe saw it, and having some other plan for 
that coat, was so put out about the matter that when Abijah 
was born his face bore a red mark, and the sanie was attrib- 
uted to the above circumstances." 



The following letter contains much unpublished information : 

YoRKViLLE, Dec. 31, 1854. 
Dear Cousin Amanda: _ 

I have received a letter from, one of Uncle JLleazer's grand- 
sons, informing us they had received a letter from you with the 
painful intelligence of 3'cur father's death on the 19th of October. 
(Abijah Merrill.'') Uncle Eleazer is now the only one of that 
family left ; he is failing fast and cannot last long. I v/as highly 
gratified with my visit in Litchfield. 

I visited the spot where our grandparents v/crc buried, and 
the same old log house they lived in is still there, and 1 saw the 
same old chair cur great grandm.cther used to sit in. xAlmost 
the whole town are Merrills, or in some vv/ay connected vv^ith 
them. 

Previous to my going there I visited Aunt Sophia, Uncle 
Joshua's widov/, living v/irh her daughter, Matilda Jane Stan- 
ten, in Scdus, Wayne county. Cousin Matilda and her husband , 
v/ent witli me to visit Cousin Sophia V/ake, Aunt Ruth's daugh- 
ter, living about ten miles west from there. From Scdus I went 
to Geneva to visit Catherine R. Stanton, the tv/o sisters having 
married brothers. I found themi all very agreeable, and enjoyed 
my visit well. I spent most of my time in Cayuga county. 

I received a letter from Cousin Almira last March. She 
vv^as preparing to make a visit to Ohio, but the unexpected re- 
turn of her husband prevented her from going. He had been 
to California about a year and a half, and returned in good 
health, well satisfied, but no wish to go again. 

Our family at present are all well. There is in all, children, 
grandchildren and great grandchildren, about 35. Brother Al- 
bert and his wife never had any children. Brother William, liv- 
ing at home when Cousin Rufus was there, is married and has 
four living, lost one. Mrs. Ostrander has two of her children

THE SCOTT BRANCH 



The following sketch of the Scott family was taken from "De- 
scendants of William Scott, of Hatfield, Mass," by permission 
of the author, Orrin Peer Allen, of Palmer, Mass. : 

WILLIAM SCOTT, HATFIELD, MASS.— 1C68-1713. 

Long and diligent search has been made for the parentage of 
Wiiiiam Scctt, but as yet the problem remains imsolved. There 
seems to have been no clue left by which we can judge whence 
or when he came to this country, for it now seems probable 
that he was an emigrant. He first appears on the scene at Hat- 
field about 1668, just a little later than John Scott at Springfield; 
and from the similar names in bcth families the inference is 
drawn that they may have been brothers or very near of kin, 
for John also has left no trace of his ancestry. It is to be 
deplored that they left no record of their extraction to gratify 
the reasonable curiosity of their descendants. It is ^uite reason- 
able, however, to suppose that they were both scions of that 
proud house of Scotts of Scotts Halls, of Kent, England, from 
Vv'hich so man}^ claim descent in this country, but this is only 
conjecture. My suggestion is that our William Scott may have 
been connected in some way with Benjamin Scott of Braintree. 
where his father-in-law, William Allis, v.^as located some twelve 
j^ears before, settling in Hadle^^ which might account for his ac- 
ciuaintance with his future wife, and for his coming to Hat- 
field. 

As before stated, William Scott came to that part of Had- 
le}'', now Hatfield, about 1668. He married, January 28, 1670, 
Hannah, daughter of Lieut. Wm. Allis, of Hatfield, b. about 
1649. 

August 8, 1670. William Scott was assigned a home lot 20 
rods in width on the east side of the street, near the north end. 
Here our ancestor began life in a somewhat rude house ; but as 
a sawmill Irad been erected in Hatfield in 1664 or 1665, no doubt 
he had a framed house inclosed by boards in a plain way. At 
this time there were probably about thirty families in town. The 
rich meadows of Hatfield were mostly clear of trees when the 
whites settled there, and ready for the plow, where the red race 
for ages had raised corn ; so the yoemen of the valley had a 
much easier time to commence life than those who settled in 
the hill towns. 

William Scott joined the expedition (King Philip's War) 



90 John Brown and his Descendants 

which made the attack upon the Indians at the Falls (Turner 
Falls), May 19, 1676, which resulted in the signal defeat of the 
enemy, as well as the death of many English. 

William Scott appears to have been a prosperous man in his 
day, and at the close of his long life had accumulated quite a 
property in landed estate. It seems that the staid dames of 
that elder day were as fond of finery as now, and although 
the law was stern, yet in 1673 we find that William Scott's wife 
and five other Hatfield women were fined for wearing silk con- 
trary to law. 

There is no record of the death of William Scott. A copy of 
his will is among the archives of Memorial Hall at Deerfield, 
dated Feb. 15, 1716. It is probable that William Scott died about 
1718; if so, he was about 83.

94 John Brown and his Descendants 



(Extract from Painesville, Ohio, paper, May 17, 1884) : 

Joel Scott and family came to Painesville about the year 
1806, and built the first grist mill. The family consisted of a wife, 
four sons and two or three daughters. The names of the sons 
were Rufus, Chester, William and Philo. Rufus and Chester 
were first-rate mechanics, and built most all of the early bridges 
in Painesville. 

Joel Scott and wife and their daughter, who married Abijah 
Merrill — who for some years was engaged in the pottery business, 
and afterward chief miller — joined the Congregational church 
in 1810. 

Chester Scott was engaged to be married to Climeda French, 
but before the wedding day came she married another man, 
whose name I have forgotten, which was a great disappointment 
to Chester, who never married. 

William Scott was the best looking of any of the family. He 
had no particular business, was very dressy, and was pleased 
to be considered a gentleman. He went south, and died perhaps 
in middle age. 

Philo, the youngest, married v/hile young, Emelia Brown, 
whose mother was the third wife of General Paine. Henry 
Brown, the brother of Emelia Brown, married Melissa Merrill, 
the granddaughter of Joel Scott. 

Perces Scott lived with her father and mother until her 
mother, Molly, died and was buried in Painesville Aug. 29, 1821. 

Joel Scott left Painesville and lived and died with his son 
Philo, at Swanton, Ohio. Perces, Chester and Rufus were never 
married, but all lived and died with or near Philo, whose last 
home v/as near the Lake Shore R. R., between Toledo and 
Bryan. 

The Scott family were very worthy pioneers of Painesville 
and will never be forgotten by the very few of their acquaint- 
ances who still remain in Painesville. 

Henry Brown and Philo Scott both proved to be very worthy 
and intelligent citizens, and were much respected in their west- 
ern homes.

The Follett Branch 95 



THE FOLLETT BRANCH 



There is a tradition in the Follett family that three brothers 
came from England and landed at Salem, Mass., at an early 
date, one of whom went to Connecticut, one to Vermont, the 
other remaining at Salem. As the first settlement in Vermont 
was in 1724, it is more likely that the three brothers were 
William of Oyster Creek, John of Dover and Robert of Salem. 
The following record was taken in part from the records 
gathered by Hon. jNIartin Dewe}^ Follett, of Marietta, Ohio.

Benjamin Follett married and went to Wyoming Valley, and 
with him went a colony from Pomfret, Vt., and from Connecticut. 
He v/ent with an ox team, which was a splendid yoke of oxen, 
red, with high heads, large horns, and brass knobs on their 
horns. He got land of the government. After the massacre 
Benjamin and his wife and Frederick, who was scalped, and 
others, came back to Wyndham, and lived there a while. Then, 
with the aid of the government, they got their land back again, 
and returned to Wyoming. 

Benjamin Follett served in the French and Indian Wars, 
having been commissioned as second lieutenant October, 1756, at 
Wyndham, Conn.

Tryphena Dimock, wife of Eliphalet Follett, was born Nov. 
2, 1778; died York, Ohio, Jan. 15, 1835. She was the daughter 
of Abel Dimock (1745-1829) and Theoda Berbank (1745-1805). 
Abel Dimock was the son of Ebenezer Dimock, who came 
from Wales and settled in Ashford, Windham County, Conn. 

The Dimock line goes back to William the Conqueror, when 
a Dimock was made King's Champion, and to the office was 
attached a plain "Sir," but also a stupendous old castle, still 
owned and in use :by descendants. At King Edwards's corona- 
tion the quaint old ceremony of a knight riding out and throw- 
ing down his gauntlet, proclaiming himself ready to fight to 
uphold the might of his ruler, was enacted as at every corona- 
tion since A¥illram's time. 

The father of Theoda Berbank was from England; he mar- 
ried a Miss Austin, of English descent. They settled in Suf- 
field, Hartford County, Conn. 



The Wyoming Massacre occurred June 30, 1778. Col. John 
Butler, with 400 Tories and 600 or 700 Indians, entered the 
valley with the purpose of driving out the settlers. The set- 
tlers gathered for protection at Fort Pitt. Had they remained 
there and waited for relief, the massacre would never have 
occurred, for the armed force of the settlers was sufficiently 
strong to repel any attack. With mistaken zeal this armed 
force marched out to drive away the invaders, but v/as itself de- 
feated and a large proportion of them. slain, and those captured 



98 John Brown and his Descendants 

v/ere put to death by all the horrible cruelties of the Indians. 

July 5th the fort capitulated, the inmates having been guar- 
anteed the personal protection of Col. Butler. The Indians 
thereupon entered the fort, and Butler, declaring he could not 
control them, left the settlers to their fate, which was torture 
and death to nearly all of them. 

Eliphalet Follett was in the preliminary battle, and was shot 
while trj^ing to escape to the fort. Mrs. Hannah Clark, his grand- 
daughter, states that her grandmother was in the fort, and their 
house, a fine two-story log building right on the bank of the 
Susquehanna, furnished in elegant style for that day, with em- 
broidered bed curtains, etc., was so near that she could see the 
feathers fly from her beds which the Indians and Tories were 
ripping open. She also saw them take her thirteen silk aprons 
of various colors and rip them into ribbons. The boy, Martin 
Dewey Follett, begged for the family Bible from a Tory, who 
was, like the others, painted like an Indian, calling the Tory 
by name. This so incensed the Tory that he raised his hatchet 
and said he would kill him if he called his name again. 

He succeeded in getting the Bible, but other things they 
begged for they did not get. They had to beg for an old mare 
that was worthless to the boodle rs, and one bed to use as a 
saddle. 

The Follett mother and six children struggled on to Ver- 
mont, where one child died from the effects of the journey, 
and where Eliphalet (2nd) was born but a few months later. 
It would be impossible to describe the hardships of that long 
and dreary journey and the mother's sorrow, pity for her 
little ones and bitter feelings over her widowhood, and her 
abject poverty. On the journey she fell and broke her arm, 
and they were three days in the woods before assistance could 
be gotten. Martin carried and led his little brother James, two 
years of age, who was barefooted, until he had an opportunity, 
when stopping at the house of a Tory, to take a pair of shoes 
that were near the door, and, unknown to his mother, conceal 
them until they were far enough on their way to be sure his 
mother would not send them back with them. 

They traveled a hundred miles with the old horse, and 
were then met by friends from Bennington, who had heard of 
their disaster and had come in wagons to their assistance. They 
never returned to Wyoming. [From "Follett -Dewey- Fassett-Saf- 
ford Ancestry." 

The family Bible mentioned is now in the possession of the great- 
great-granddaughter of Elizabeth Follett, Mrs. Grace (Greene) 
Baker. (See No. 185). 

The "Life of George Dewey (Admiral)" says of Elizabeth 
Follett : "She was remembered as energetic, short, thick-set, 
straight as a candle, and never leaned back in her chair ; was 
deaf towards the last of her life." 



The Nash Ancestry 99 



THE NASH ANCESTRY 



The descendants of Abraham Merrill, who married Abigail 
Xash, can claim as their ancestors those who are the subjects 
of this sketch. 

Abigail Nash was the 6th child of Lieut. John Nash, of 
Hadley, Mass., and the only daughter that lived to adult age. 
She died of palsy April 3, 1782, aged S2 years. 

Her mother was Elizabeth Kellogg, born Oct. 9, 1673. She 
was the daughter of Joseph Kellogg, of Farmington, Conn., and 
Hadley, Mass. 

Elizabeth's mother was Abigail Terry, daughter of Stephen 
Terry, of Windsor, Conn. * * * Lieut. John Nash married 
Elizabeth Kellogg, who was the sister of Prudence Kellogg, who 
married Abraham Merrill ; Samuel Nash, brother of Abigail, 
married Margaret Merrill, daughter of Prudence (Kellogg) and 
Abraham Merrill. * * * 

Lieut. John Nash was the 6th of the 12 children of Lieut. 
Timothy Ss'ash^ and his wife Rebekah Stone. He was an ex- 
tensive land owner, and also had a blacksmith shop — a line of 
business which was very important in those early days. He was 
"much employed in town business" at Hadley, Mass. He v.-as a 
representative to the General Court of Massachusetts at sev- 
eral sessions from 1707 to 1731. He died Oct. 7, 1743. After 
his death his widow (Elizabeth) lived with her daughter Abigail, 
wife of Deacon Abraham Merrill, Jr. In the old burying ground 
at West Hartford, Conn., there stands a monument of red free- 
stone which has inscribed on it : 'Tn memory of Elizabeth Nash, 
wife of Lieut. John Nash, of Hadley, ]\Iass., who died July 
ye 4th, 1750, in the 77th year of her age." This monument is 
by the side of two similar stones erected to the memory of 
Deacon Abraham Merrill's parents. 

Lieut. Timothy Nash was the youngest of five children of 
Thomas Nash the Emigrant. Timothy Nash was born in Eng- 
land or at Leyden, Holland, in 1626. He married Rebekah Stone 
in 1657 at New Haven, Conn. They removed to Hadley, Mass., 
June 22, 1663, and had a £100 allotment of property. He was 
a representative to the General Court of Massachusetts several 
terms. He died March 13, 1699. He left a very large estate 
and the Hadley records have a copy of his will, also a copy 
of the will of his wife Rebekah, and they are very interesting 
reading. The father of Rebekah (Stone) Nash was the Rev. 
Samuel Stone, who was born in Hartford (or Heartford),

England. Ke came to Boston in 1633 ii^ company with Mr. 
Hooker and Mr. Cotton. He was a lecturer among the dis- 
senters in England, and shortly after his arrival in this coun- 
try was ordained with Mr. Hooker at Newton, taking the title 
of Teacher; Mr. Hooker taking the title of Pastor. (See early 
history of Hartford). 

At the breaking out of the Pequot War ''Mr. Stone it was 
who went with the soldiers as Chaplain, kept their courage ever 
high and holy through pious mindfulness — who went to pray 
with them as they sailed, as they marched, in fatigue, in pain, 
and during the perils of a mortal struggle." * * * "Mr. 
Samuel Stone Deceased ye 61 st yr. of his age, July 20, 1663." 
This inscription is on his monument: 

"New England's glory and her radiant crowne 
Was he who now on softest bed of downe 
Till glorious resurrection' morne appeare 
Doth safely sweetly sleep in Jesus here. 
In nature's solid art and reasoning well 
• Tis knowne be3'ond compare he did excell. 

Errors corrupt by sinewous dispute 
He did oppugne and clearly them confute. 
Above all things he Christ his Lord preferred. 
Hartford, thy richest jewel's here interred." 

He is on record in history as "A Theological Socrates — a 
subtle reasoner — remarkable for his frequent fastings and exact 
Sabbaths — a man of principle — both a loadstone and a flint- 
stone." Previous to the year 1659 a controversey had long been 
carried on in Hartford and Wethersford chiefly in regard to the 
government of the church and the term of church membership. 
It began between Mr. William Goodwin, a ruling elder at Hart- 
ford, who adhered to rigid Congregationalism, and the Rev. 
Samuel Stone, who was thought to be leaning a little toward 
Presbyterianism. Weary Vv^ith the strife, sixty persons with the 
Rev. John Russell as pastor, entered into an agreement on 
April 18, 1659, to leave the colony, which most of them did, and 
bef/an the settlement of Hadlcy, Mass. They had no 'black- 
smith, and it was very important to have one- in the new settle- 
ment. Timothy Nash had been trained as a gunsmith, also a 
blacksmith, and v/as prevailed upon to accompany the new colony 
to Hadle}^, Mass. 

Thomas Nash came with the Davenport colony in 1637. 
On the 26th of July that 3^ear, from the ship Hector and another 
not named, a company landed at Boston, Mass., formed princi- 
pally by merchants of London, whose wealth and standing at 
home enabled them to come out under more favorable auspices 
than any company that had hitherto sought these shores. They 
were accompanied by the Rev. John Davenport as their pastor, 
and are supposed to have been m.ostly members of his church 



The Nash Ancestry 101 

and congregation in Coleman street, London. The Leaders were 
men of good, practical understanding and provided for the an- 
ticipated wants of an infant colony, by learning trades and arts 
such as were likely to be most needed. In this company was 
Thomas Nash, his wife Margery, and their five children. 
Thomas Nash was one of the members of the Rev, John Rob- 
inson's congregation at Leyden, Holland, part of whom w'ere 
the first settlers at Plymouth in 1620. On Nov. 30, 1625, five 
of those who remained at Leyden addressed a letter to their 
brethren at Plymouth and signed it as "brethren in the Lord." 
One of these five men was our ancestor, Thomas Nash. (Mass. 
Hist. Coll.). Thomas Nash returned to England later and came 
over with the Davenport colony. The colony settled at Quin- 
nipiac — now New Haven, purchasing the land from Momaguin 
and his counsellors. On June 4th, 1639, after solemn religious 
exercises held in Mr. Newsman's barn, they drew up the funda- 
mental agreement. Thomas Nash was the 66th signer. He was 
also one of the signers of the Guilford compact, but did not go 
to Guilford finally, although great inducements were oft'ered 
him as they needed a gunsmith. The records of the General 
Court held ^day 19, 1651, indicate his vocation as follows: "It 
is ordered that Thomas Nash shall keepe the Towne Musketts 
in his hands and look to them well that they be ahvays in good 
order fit for service, and that the Towne allow him what is Just 
for his care and pains." Thomas Nash was from Lancaster, 
England, and his wife Margery Baker was the daughter of 
Nicholas Baker of Hertfordshire, England. The Baker an- 
cestry is found in ''County Genealogies and Pedigrees of Hert- 
fordshire families." This book is in the British Museum, Eng- 
land. John Baker m.arried Margery Madistard. Their oldest 
child Nicholas married Mary Hodgetts — he died Nov. 14, 1632 — 
their fourth child Margery married Thomas Nash and came to 
New England.

THE LYON ANCESTRY 



Since the "Foreword" went into print, the examination of 
the "Vital Records" of Massachusetts at Wiluraham has been 
completed, and the following information received concerning 
the parentage of '"Lovina Lyon :"

TO ALL WHO ARE INTERESTED: 

This book is intended primarily as a record. In 
order that it may have an increasing value, and 
be kept up to date, members of the Brown Family 
and the other branches included in this Genealogy, 
are requested to send to the Historian notice of all 
changes occurring in their own families, and any 
other items that will be of historical interest to the 
Family in general. If any incomplete portion of 
the present record can be filled out more fully, 
please send such information. If sufficient data is 
secured, a supplement to this book can be issued 
occasionally, and the cost to each subscriber would 
be very small. 

Fannie Brown Smith, 

2131 Woodland Ave., 

Duluth, Minn.
